About Rob & Jamie Baker

My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers for the past 8+ years. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. Overall our plan is to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Rob & Jamie Baker purchased this lodge in 2014

Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

What makes this lodge unique

We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!

Wow were we ever impressed with the cabin! This was our first time staying there and it was excellent. Great location near Crystal Mountain, but secluded enough and extremely peaceful. We are looking forward to our next stay!

Wonderful location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this location on multiple occasions all of which have been outstanding. The home is well cared for, comfortable and located very close to Crystal Mountain. There is more than enough in the form of blankets, sheets, towels, dishes, etc...very well appointed. The view of the river is inspiring and calming. The owners are fabulous and accommodating. I would highly recommend this home for the location, value, and ease of reservation. Looking forward to our next visit.

very happy campers

  • 5 of 5

We rented the betsie river lodge back in September, we loved everything about it... the lodge was beautiful inside and out, the land was perfect. We stayed with our 5 month baby and 5 year old, they both loved it. Great for any age. So peaceful, i can't wait to go back... the week stay wasn't long enough. Highly recommended.
